  1. Pathological grade I: well differentiation, grade II: moderately differentiation, grade III: poorly differentiation. Pathological stage refers to the 7th Edition of TNM Classification of Malignant Tumors form UICC. P-value represents the gene expression of GABA receptor in NSCLC tissues compared with that in paired non-cancerous controls. NS: no significant difference. *P < 0.05, ** P < 0.01.
